Flood alert – Upper River Tamar

It’s nothing like as bad as South Yorkshire and the Midlands is getting but there is a flood alert in force for the Upper River Tamar.

A band of heavy rain is forecast to cross the area this morning Saturday 9th November. This band of rain will be followed by frequent and sometimes prolonged heavy showers throughout the afternoon. Due to recent wet weather and very wet ground, river levels are likely to respond rapidly to any rainfall.

This may lead to flooding of low lying land from mid morning on Saturday, continuing into the early hours of Sunday.

Please take care near the areas of concern and monitor your local weather conditions.
